We’re sure most people still remember the old glory days of playing Snake on their Nokia phones, in all it’s monochrome glory. Those days are long behind us, the times when you were stuck with whatever software was on your feature phone, and almost always there would be Snake.
Now the game is making a comeback for touchscreen phones thanks to Nokia engineer Taneli Armanto who was originally responsible for putting the game on the Nokia 6110 and developer Rumilus Design for a fresh take on good ol’ Snake.

It may be an earnest April Fool’s prank on Microsoft‘s part but it’s one you really get to play around with. Harking back to the “good old days” of MS-DOS, you can now enjoy the experience all over again on your Windows Phone.
Turn your Windows Phone into a device of yesteryear in black and white with no notifications, Live Tiles or Toast, and think of your huge old CRT monitor and that little mountain of floppy drives you needed to store, well, everything. It’s all in good fun and a bit of nostalgia, even the camera shoots in ASCII, it’s hilarious.
They’ve made the MS-DOS Mobile emulator available on the Windows Phone store if you feel like giving it a go, or hit the video after the jump to check it out.

When Microsoft announced its Windows 10 Technical Preview for the Xiaomi Mi 4, many got excited that Xiaomi could be working on 2 different mobile platforms in future. To address the concerns of many, its VP Hugo Barra has posted a short note on Google+ to explain their stand.
Delivering the Windows 10 experience apparently is fully driven by Microsoft and they work directly with the Mi Fan community in China. As Xiaomi supports openness with unlocked bootloaders on its devices, they welcome Microsoft to work with their fans to explore new experiences. For the selected Mi 4 power users, they would need to flash the software themselves, like how one would flash their own preferred custom ROMs. In case you’re wondering, the Windows 10 Technical Preview unfortunately is available only to China users.
Xiaomi also reemphasise its commitment to Android and MIUI, so it looks like there won’t be an official Mi device with Windows 10 running out of the box. Once Windows 10 is officially released, you are probably able to make the switch by flashing the Mi 4 at your own risk.
